"Create a business climate in which it makes economic sense to do business here" means WHAT exactly? That answer, without any specifics, says absolutely NOTHING. Here's some economics for you: no business hires on the basis of TAXES. Businesses hire on the basis of DEMAND. If there's a market for product, more workers will be hired to fill that demand, regardless of taxes. In fact, no one turns down more revenue because they have to pay more tax. Have you ever turned down a job/raise because the salary they would pay you would involve higher taxes?

It was one of Barack Obama's best lines -- and best moments -- in the 2008 presidential campaign.

He had said we could save as much oil as we could get from domestic drilling if everybody properly maintained their cars and got their tires inflated. Now, that was hyperbole. But when conservatives, including his opponent, Sen. John McCain, tried to turn tire gauges into a symbol of Obama's pointy-headed liberalism (remember Dukakis and the endive!) and the sum total of his energy plan (if only!), Obama stood his ground.
